A robber dragged a Cheektowaga man from his car about 12:30 a.m. Monday in the Town of Hamburg and then drove away, police said.
The victim told Town of Hamburg police he was overpowered by a robber while parked in a lot outside Dickie's Donuts on Lakeshore Road in Woodlawn.
A short time later, off-duty Erie County Sheriff's Deputy John Zeitler said he saw a man crash Alfred Herman's car into a dumpster near St. Francis Drive in Hamburg, then run away.
After a short chase on foot, Hamburg Officers Lindsey Dunne and Daniel Bauer arrested Jerome Sunley of 5523 Southwestern Blvd., Hamburg, and charged him with third-degree robbery and unauthorized use of a vehicle, and resisting arrest.
Police said Sunley was on parole for an earlier violation.
